Pharmacy Practice Residency

The Carolinas Poison Center offers a one-year specialty residency in toxicology for a pharmacist. The residency experience includes all facets of clinical toxicology and prepares the resident for successful credentialing by the American Board of Applied Toxicology (ABAT). Activities include care of the poisoned or overdosed patient, formal teaching from Medical and PharmD toxicologists, poison center management, clinical research, and manuscript preparation. The primary focus is recognizing, assessing, and managing toxic patients. The resident functions as an essential member of the toxicology service at Carolinas Medical Center. Minimum requirements include a PharmD from an accredited school of Pharmacy. Completion of a general pharmacy practice residency is preferred but not required.
